  • You’ll be working for a thriving large subsidiary within a profitable UK PLC, a growing FSTE listed business with a £bn+ turnover.

It’s an impressive standalone business – profitable and well-managed….

  • Fast paced manufacturing group, hybrid working model (site based in Harrow)… you’ll have progressed in either mid / top tier practice or industry and be looking for variety and challenge.
  • Experience of leading a small team would be super useful. You also need to be confident in your ability to pick up new systems (and know your way around excel).

If you are an diligent and experienced accountant who enjoys leading a team it would be great to speak… experience of group accounting / financial control or financial management within a large business / subsidiary would be very useful.
